Slamm Hockey is back and this time they are playing for cash. League officials believe this is the first time in roller hockey history that any prize money has been awarded for a woman’s event. Slamm Hockey is played with alternating lines of men vs. men and women vs. women in full contact action. Adding to the fun is that, in games carried on broadband TV, there are announcers on the players bench with each team discussing the action. It is not uncommon to hear the women dissing the men on their shift and vice versa. Bill Raue, Slamm Hockey creator calls it “90% pure hockey and 10% soap opera.”
